Nor'easter pounds the Atlantic coast

Nor'easter pounds the Atlantic coast

Hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses from Virginia to New England remained without power Monday, several days after a major nor'easter struck the East Coast, and with another storm bearing down.

Winds along parts of the MA coast whipped in excess of 90 miles per hour during the storm. Hurricane-force winds of 78 miles per hour were reported off of Wellfleet, Massachusetts. Trump flew to Charlotte, North Carolina, to attend the funeral of the Rev. Billy Graham. The New York-Washington leg of the passenger service was still suspected Saturday morning. Amtrak said weather conditions had slowed service between Washington and New York City.

The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority was reporting commuter rail delays, particularly along coastal routes still recovering from weather-related problems.

The storm knocked out power to 700,000 homes and businesses from MI to North Carolina. Almost 141,000 customers there were without power Friday morning.

The federal government has also shuttered all of its offices. The Smithsonian museums also shut its doors.

The majority of the power outages in MA, occurred in the southeastern region of the state, as reported by CBS.

Powerful waves crashed into the seawall and sprayed homes in Scituate, Massachusetts, on Friday during the storm.

A deadly storm hammered the Northeast with relentless rain, snow and powerful winds.

Snow showers and coastal flooding were expected in parts of upstate NY and New England on Sunday as another, much weaker storm arrives. For example, in Duxbury, 97 percent of the town is without power. Stewart lost power the night before. Hornell has gotten more than 14 inches of snow in the past day.

China is considered as one of the biggest markets when it comes to earning revenue for the movies (ask Aamir Khan). One of the movies we are obviously talking about is Chadwick Boseman and Michael B Jordan starrer Black Panther .

Accumulations were lower in eastern parts of the state, but the heavy mix of snow and rain made traveling hazardous, especially in the high-elevation areas like the Catskill Mountains.

Still, officials said it could be midweek before everyone is back on line. "There's more snow than I've seen in quite a few years".

"Driving around, it's unsafe".

Up the coast in Scituate, Becky Smith watched as ocean waters started to fill up a nearby marina's parking lot from her vantage point at the Barker Tavern, a restaurant overlooking the harbor. On Saturday afternoon, PowerOutage.us reported more than 1.9 million customers were still without power. We could see more of a classic storm track for big snow, which could give you about 12 inches. "The Harbormaster was down there with police, and they didn't know what to do". Quincy police warned drivers on Twitter not to try and drive down flooded streets.

In the MA city of Quincy floodwaters submerged cars and police rescued people trapped in their vehicles.

Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker has activated 200 National Guard members.

Hurricane-force winds lashed the MA capital and nearby communities, where storm surges and high tides sent seawater into the streets - the second time the area has been flooded this year.

The National Weather Service in Boston said in a tweet that winds are likely to remain an issue through Monday and that it's monitoring for a potential nor'easter midweek.

Along Cape Cod, the high tide on Saturday will reach near major flood stage, and will once again be in the top three crests on record.
